Hood River Things To Do

Stay In The Heart Of The Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area

Located in the heart of the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area, Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa is perfectly situated for guests seeking to explore the abundant sightseeing and recreational opportunities located throughout the picturesque Hood River Valley. From the majestic cliffs and waterfalls of the Columbia River Gorge and the snow-capped peak of Mt. Hood to over 15,000 acres of farms, orchards, vineyards, and the Hood River — which is often referred to as the “Wind Surfing Capital of the World” — there’s something for everyone, whether you’re an outdoor adventurer, foodie, wine lover or historian.  

The Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa has a rich history and was a favored retreat for many movie stars such as Clara Bow, Rudolph Valentino, and Shirley Temple, presidents like Roosevelt and Coolidge and other social and political dignitaries. During the time of steamers and speakeasies, Valentino and the Model T people were dancing the Charleston and listening to jazz throughout our wonderful hotel. The same lush, romantic ambiance and lavish service of the past continues to delight. For more details and historic information please refer to link below:
